The data deluge isn’t slowing down anytime soon – subscribers are demanding ever more content and Internet of Things market is about to explode. Mobile operators must figure out how to support this extra traffic on their overloaded networks, and ideally without purchasing expensive new spectrum.

Enter one of the hottest innovations in the industry: LTE over an unlicensed spectrum. By aggregating unlicensed spectrum with an anchor in licensed spectrum, mobile operators can cost-effectively and efficiently add capacity and coverage where it’s needed. Heavy Reading analyst Gabriel Brown and Radisys’ small cell expert Renuka Bhalerao will share insights into the approaches to delivering this technology today, the associated challenges and how to overcome them.

You will learn:

  • The drivers behind LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) technology, driven by the LTE-U Forum, which delivers a pre-standardized approach deployable today
  • How LTE-Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) from 3GPP is delivering a standardized approach to the technology and look at the path to deployment
  • Why small cells are the right choice in unlicensed spectrum, due to a radius that aligns with WiFi, low power requirements, and built-in carrier aggregation techniques
  • How coexistence with Wi-Fi and other technologies in unlicensed spectrum will work, including a detailed look at “Listen Before Talk” techniques
  • What lessons have been learned in field trials to date

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
